A Folklore Game that pitches the darkest creatures in mythology against each other.
Clash of the Cryptids is a 2 or 4 player card game that holds a collection of 32 cards printed on premium cardstock in metallic ink. Each card displays unique Cryptid art alongside a creature biography and five measured statistics. From Fear factor, Strength, Stealth, Mythos and deadliness.
To start the game, shuffle and deal all the cards face down. Each player holds their cards so that they can see the top card only. The player to the dealer’s left begins by reading out one of the categories from the top card (e.g. Fear Factor 60). The other players then read out the same category from their cards. The one with the best or highest value wins, and that player collects all the top cards, including their own, and moves them to the bottom of their pile. It is then their turn again to choose a category from the next card.
If two or more cards share the top value or data is not available for that particular category then all the cards are placed in the middle and the same player chooses again from the next card. The winner of the hand takes the cards in the middle as well. The person with all the cards at the end is the Winner!
As a huge fan of Cryptids and their tales this is something I’m extremely excited about! It’s a Kickstarter project that was actually funded in under an hour of going live so I’m certainly not alone in my excitement for it.
